iH8Sn0w has announced the discovery of an iBoot exploit that makes A5(X) devices jailbroken for life!
The A5 processor is used in the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, Apple TV 3G, iPod touch 5G, and iPad mini. The A5X processor is used in the iPad 3.
iH8Sn0w posted the A5 AES keys to Twitter earlier today:
A5 AES Keys anyone? 4S 7.0.4 iBSS -iv 3a0fc879691a5a359973792bcd367277 -k 371e3aea9121d90b8106228bf2b5ee4c638a0b4837fefbd87a3c0aca646e5996
He also noted that all the A5(X) AES keys will be posted here shortly.
All A5(X) AES Keys will be posted on @icj_’s http://www.icj.me/ios/keys as soon as I clean this up a bit more :)
While the iBoot exploit is not as good as a bootrom exploit, iH8Sn0w notes that it is very powerful and will result in his A5(X) devices having an untethered jailbreak for life.
So looks like all my A5(X) devices are fully untethered and jailbroken for life now. :)
No. This isn’t a bootrom exploit. Still a very powerful iBoot exploit though (when exploited properly ;P /cc @winocm).
Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates. If you haven't jailbroken already please use the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard to jailbreak your device.
It appears that this exploit may never go public, according to tweet from winocm.
@iH8sn0w @livealex13 this one isn't ever going public. It's hell to use.
So why is this important? If kept private, this exploit can be used to help find other ones. We now have a 'secret weapon' that can be used to grab encryption keys and find new jailbreaks on newer firmwares and devices!
So looks like all my A5(X) devices are fully untethered and jailbroken for life now. :)— iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) February 1, 2014
